Keys Vacation 2015


So I know I say this every year, but this year's Florida Keys vacation was the best yet! (Check out past years: 2011, 2013, 2014) We rented the same house in Marathon as we did last year. My parents, my sister and her husband, my niece and nephew, my best friend Shannon, and Greg & I all stayed in the 3-story house for a week. My aunt, uncle and cousin rented a house down the canal which was perfect for pool hopping! We all had an amazing time lobstering & fishing on the boat during the day, playing in the pool in the afternoon, and cooking delicious meals every night! We celebrated two birthdays: my nephew Aiden turned 8 and my boyfriend Greg turned 29! It was so nice to be with my family and make more fun-filled memories with Aiden and Alexa! It was a perfect, relaxing week - it was so hard to leave paradise! Can't wait for our next trip! Check out my favorite memories below!
